The ATV rolled over, injuring both Meghan and her passenger, 24-year-old Dennis Marquis, also of Warwick, R.I. A member of Hart’s party called for help, shortly before 7 p.m.
Personnel from the Berlin Fire Department, Berlin EMS, Berlin Police Department and N.H. Fish and Game Department responded to the scene. Hart and Marquis were taken from the scene in a specially equipped off-road rescue vehicle and taken to a waiting ambulance.
They were then taken to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin for further evaluation and treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Both were found to be wearing helmets and eye protection, essential safety gear that protected them from further injury. Fish and Game said in appears inexperience was a major factor in the accident.
